Front & Back View

Outside the show floor, you’ll find Stern at the Stern Pinball Pop-Up Arcade at the Marriott Marquis, featuring all of the latest Stern Pinball machines. Players can register at a connected game by scanning a QR code or at the Stern Pinball website at Insider Connected. Once a player registers, they are issued a unique QR Code that can be used to identify that player at any connected Stern pinball machine anywhere in the world. When a player logs into the machine, they can track progress, earn new game specific achievements, engage with the player community, and participate in promotions and Challenge Quests.

Also at the offsite you’ll find Nerdist, who will be setting up shop there for the entire con for live tapings of Nerdist News, interviews with celebrity guests, and more.

Toho, the company behind Godzilla, will also be at the offsite.
